It's official, we are number 1 according to the Reverse Wine Snob.
Jon Thorsen is "a wine consumer helping other wine consumers find great grape without breaking the bank. Wine doesn't have to be expensive to be good! All reviews are based on drinking wine normally; no one sip tasting notes allowed."
The one thing that Mr. Thorsen doesn't mention in his bio is his ability to finesse the written word, especially when it comes to wine reviews. Don't believe us? Read his wonderful words about Mt. Beautiful Pinot Noir and decide for yourself.
1) Mt. Beautiful North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2011 - Brings Its A-Game.
A simply lovely nose of cranberry, black cherry, a little oak, a little baking spice and some nice floral notes is just the beginning on our new #1 wine. This amazing wine tastes silky smooth with lots of tart black cherry, strawberry and cranberry plus some really lovely spice. Medium-bodied with good acidity, this Pinot Noir has absolutely fabulous balance -- it's one of those wines where everything just comes together. It ends fantastically with a very long cranberry and spice tinged finish. If the Pinot Noir snob in you has prevented you from sampling the fantastic wines coming out of New Zealand, this might just be the wine to change your mind.
